Simeon and Levi (Dinah’s brothers)
Genesis 34 New Century Version (NCV)
1 At this time Dinah, the daughter of Leah and Jacob, went out to visit the women of the land.2 When Shechem son of Hamor the Hivite, the ruler of the land, saw her, he took her and forced her to have sexual relations with him.3 Shechem fell in love with Dinah, and he spoke kindly to her.4 He told his father, Hamor, “Please get this girl for me so I can marry her.”
25 Three days later the men who were circumcised were still in pain. Two of Jacob’s sons, Simeon and Levi (Dinah’s brothers), took their swords and made a surprise attack on the city, killing all the men there.26 They killed Hamor and his son Shechem and then took Dinah out of Shechem’s house and left.27 Jacob’s sons came upon the dead bodies and stole everything that was in the city, to pay them back for what Shechem had done to their sister.28 So the brothers took the flocks, herds, and donkeys, and everything in the city and in the fields.29 They took every valuable thing the people owned, even their wives and children and everything in the houses.
5 “Simeon and Levi are brothers who used their swords to do violence.
6 I will not join their secret talks, and I will not meet with them to plan evil.
They killed men because they were angry, and they crippled oxen just for fun.
24 Simeon’s sons were Nemuel, Jamin, Jarib, Zerah, and Shaul.25 Shaul’s son was Shallum. Shallum’s son was Mibsam. Mibsam’s son was Mishma. 26 Mishma’s son was Hammuel. Hammuel’s son was Zaccur. Zaccur’s son was Shimei. 27 Shimei had sixteen sons and six daughters, but his brothers did not have many children, so there were not as many people in their family group as there were in Judah.

from the tribe of Levi twelve thousand,
